Community School To Go On Hiatus for Fall 2020 Semester

It is with sincere regret that we, the Community School of New Hope-Solebury, must announce that we will not hold classes for the Fall 2020 semester.

Since 1978 we have been providing affordable, interesting classes to thousands of our community members, but the impact of Covid-19 has effectively forced us to take a semester off, despite strenuous efforts to find alternative solutions.

The lack of safe acceptable spaces available to hold our classes, the reticence of even our usual advertisers to invest in our brochure during this economic downturn, and our own uncertainty about our  ability to insure the  quality of all new alternative format online classes have combined to lead us to this regretful decision.

We have every intention of restarting in March of 2021 and look forward to seeing you then. Thank you for all your support and we hope that you’ll be able to join us in the Spring.
